After facing a significant setback in the Nevada Republican primary, presidential candidate Nikki Haley expressed her determination to continue her campaign during a gathering with supporters in Southern California on February 7. Addressing a crowd at the Hollywood American Legion Post 43, Haley, a former United Nations ambassador and ex-governor of South Carolina, highlighted the pressing issue of the federal deficit, emphasizing that the nation is currently grappling with a staggering $34 trillion debt. She pointed out that both parties, including Republicans, have contributed to the economic challenges the country faces.
In an effort to rally support ahead of California’s primary on March 5, Haley attended events in Orange County, including one organized by the local Republican Party in Costa Mesa. Despite her recent defeat in the Nevada primary, where she secured only 31 percent of the vote against “none of these candidates,” Haley remained steadfast in her commitment to the presidential race.
During her appearance in Hollywood, Haley refrained from dwelling on her Nevada loss but instead focused on the broader challenges facing the nation. She expressed concern over the disapproval ratings for both President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump, blaming them for accumulating trillions of dollars in debt. Haley questioned the wisdom of having candidates in their 80s and advocated for a leader capable of dedicating eight years to address the country’s issues.

Critiquing both parties for excessive spending during the COVID-19 pandemic, Haley pledged to reclaim unspent COVID dollars allocated to states, advocating for a balanced budget and an end to borrowing. She announced her intention to veto any spending bill that did not return the country to pre-COVID levels, asserting that such measures would save trillions.
Outlining her goals, Haley emphasized cutting wasteful spending, stabilizing the economy, promoting literacy among children, and revamping the education system. Additionally, she vowed to secure the border, maintain law and order, and devolve federal programs, such as education, healthcare, welfare, and mental health, back to the states. Haley also promised middle-class relief by eliminating federal gas and diesel taxes, making small-business tax cuts permanent, and supporting the oil and gas industry by reducing environmental regulations.

Despite interruptions from a climate protester during her speech, Haley received enthusiastic support from the audience. She pledged transparency in education by putting curricula online for parents to access and advocated for the reintroduction of vocational classes in high schools. Haley stressed the importance of parental choice in education and stated that parents should have the authority to decide where their children go to school.
Addressing border security, Haley proposed deploying 25,000 Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, reinstating the “remain in Mexico” policy, defunding sanctuary cities, and implementing a national E-Verify program for businesses.
